Boat-able Recipes: Bar-B-Que Hot Wings

Chicken Wings

When you’re cook­ing on a boat in Lake Coun­ty, you want the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of crowd-pleas­ing’ and easy to pre­pare.’ Bar-B-Que Hot Wings is a per­fect choice.

16 jum­bo chick­en wings
A neu­tral-tast­ing cook­ing oil (sun­flower, corn, safflower)
Salt and pep­per (to taste)
Qual­i­ty hot sauce (e.g., Frank’s, Texas Pete’s, Stubb’s or Crystal)

  1. Coat each wing with oil to pre­vent stick­ing to grill.
  2. Sea­son with salt and pepper.
  3. Pre­heat grill to medi­um-high with grill 45” above heat source. For a char­coal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5” above grill for just 3 to 4 seconds.
  4. Put the wings on the grill. Cov­er the grill and cook, check­ing and turn­ing once or twice, until the wings are cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Brush wings with hot sauce. Grill again, turn­ing and brush­ing with sauce occa­sion­al­ly, until the wings are marked by grill, 6 to 7 min­utes. Cool for a few min­utes and dig in!
